Once upon a time, Great Institutions. Now Not!
This just in: Fibre Channel is set to join them in the Where are they now? file.
Ill repeat that for the hearing impaired: Fibre Channel will fall. Fail. Falter. In other words: The end is nigh!
But all kidding aside, Im not trying to start a panic here. As is the case with our Sun (that hot, throbbing blob up in the sky; not the one that makes servers), theres still some time (tick, tock, tick, tock) before the thing fizzles out. Network managers whove deployed Fibre Channel, or investors that have bought stock in Brocade, still have time to prepare for the end of the world (as we know it, Jimmy!).
